Ready, Set, Go! Getting Kids Prepared for the New School Year!

It’s hard to believe summer is almost over! Many have already gone back to school, but mine are just shy of 2 weeks away from their start.  This year is particularly bittersweet with my last one, Lucas, Age 3, off to his first school year in Nursery. He couldn’t be more excited. He’s been walked through, and walked through those school halls since he was born. If he had his way he would have been in school years ago! One of the biggest questions has been, will he be ready? I recently introduced him to the Lakeshore Magic Board, a […]

A Whole New Way to Fight off the Mosquitos with PARA’KITO @parakitoUSA

Summer is in full swing and that means lots of summer concerts, camping, hiking and of course, tons of outdoor play.  Being outdoors is a given in this warm weather.  My family enjoys being outside until long after the sun has gone down.  Together we run through sprinklers, go on long bike rides and catch fireflies at sunset.  We have endless thoughts of perfectly quaint family outings and barbeques and out adventures are always seemingly picture perfect.  Summer fun seems like it comes without flaws or without nuisances.  What our happy pictures don’t show are the little things that can […]

Adorn your home with The Adorne Collection by Legrand

It’s no secret, I do not LOVE my house. We purchased this home, over 10 years ago now, out of practicality and my husband’s need to remain close to his family. We LITERALLY moved right next door to his sister and around the corner from his parents.  Being that there are only 2 houses on the block, you could say we have a little bit of a COMPOUND. My former boss and Kennedy family member use to joke with me that I had the Chan Compound and he, affectionately, had the Kennedy Compound. It still tickles me when I think […]

Chores in the Digital Age #VZWBuzz

If you didn’t get the news flash…my daughter got an iPhone for her 9th birthday. I still have mixed emotions about it, and may go on a bit of a rant here, but there is some legitimate and valid arguments from both my husband and daughter. She was definitely getting more social, many of her friends at school already had phones and she was getting left out of conversations and messages, also Verizon’s new plans which just rolled out giving us more data with carry over making it perfect timing. With our upcoming trip to Mexico, the included plan access […]

This summer has gone by way to quickly, and the kids will be back to school in no time.  While we still have a few weeks left to enjoy, parents and students everywhere are beginning to think about their back to school needs, which include everything from school supplies to the ever-important back to school wardrobe. My kids aren’t the only ones going back to school this year.  I too, will be going back to school, as I work to obtain my master’s degree.  As a working parent who is also in school, my wardrobe choices can range from comfy […]

Recoup and Rejuvenate with FiOS

First let me tell you that going back to school is NO JOKE.  Add working full-time, 3 kids and blogging and it’s a recipe for exhaustion. It doesn’t stop there though, going back to school also involves no breaks and going straight through which meant a summer intensive session for this gal. Intensive doesn’t even begin to describe what the past several weeks have been like.  As my family can attest to, there was no time for anything other than school, school and school.  It was rough for everyone in my family.  We all looked at my calendar, almost religiously, […]

How Playtime Can Help Avoid the Summer Learning Slump with Lakeshore Learning

Ahhh, summer break. Time to get outdoors and go swimming at the local pool. For our family summer is all about weekend getaways, baseball games and have a blast at camp. My kids will say that summer is a time to have tons of fun. While I wholeheartedly agree that school is out and it’s time to relax, I don’t necessarily believe in the saying “no more pencils, no more books.”  As a matter of fact, I often try to incorporate lots of education fun in our summer activities so that my boys are constantly learning, even while having their summer fun.
